“Didn’t have Dua Lipa in FIFA on my 2020 bingo card,” wrote one fan on Twitter. Another said: “Dua Lipa playing for the lads in FIFA. Guaranteed to score more goals than Griggs.”
The next-gen version of FIFA 21 (PS5 and Xbox Series X) will launch on December 4, while the enhanced PC edition will arrive at some point next year. Players who own current-gen versions of the game also will be entitled to a free next-gen upgrade, but only for the equivalent next-gen console – for example, PS4 to PS5.
Players have until the launch of FIFA 22, supposed sometime in late-2021, to claim their upgraded version of FIFA 21. Additionally, users who own physical copies of the game have been advised to hold on to the discs as they will be required to launch the game on next-gen consoles.
Meanwhile, Dua Lipa is set to release an album of ‘Future Nostalgia’ B-sides next year. A collaboration between the singer and Miley Cyrus is also reportedly on the way, with Cyrus promising that it will drop “pretty soon”.
